“Sequoia National Park - a must see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

We had a family reunion at this beautiful national park and had a great time. We stayed at the Wuksachi Lodge. If you want to enjoy the park, I suggest you reserve early! Don't miss the Sherman Tree, tunnel lag, giant forest and Morro rock climbing. Places to eat in the park are expensive and not good so be creative with food supply.

“Seeing the Big 'uns”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Travel along the Generals' Highway in Sequoia National Park. Check out the General Sherman Tree(the tallest Sequoia known) and then visit the General Grant Tree(greatest by volume) at the opposite end. Along the way, you'll see some impressive big ones.

“Remarkable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Everything about this place is remarkable. Be aware when driving into the parks that there will be a lot of travelers and the roads are very curvy. Although I have never encountered animals I would want to mention that you may either on the trails or on the road so be prepared so you and the wildlife stay say. Enjoy your visit and keep plenty of time set aside for relaxation because it's a lot to take in.

“A MUST for dayhikers looking for a challenge!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

I hiked the Lakes Trail en route to Alta Peak and was rewarded by a great wilderness experience and amazing vistas. Depending upon your final destination it can be a long, challenging trip. Just make sure you are prepared before setting out. Its definitely a voyage worth taking so carpe diem!

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

The Sequoia Forest is amazing! The drive up the mountain is about an hour of winding roads and steep upgrades/downgrades. Despite the drive, the forest is well worth the visit.
